I'm not your average filmgoer. I'm also studying film, in hopes to someday work in the industry. So I look at movies very differently.
They're not just escapist entertainment for me, or something to do "on a hot summer's day." To me film is an art form, so I also judge a film by the craft that's put up on screen.
Sure, I have my preferences, but you'll never find me click on the "not interested" button on here.
I like the craft enough not to dismiss it. So here's to movies and the magic they can create. Hope you're as open-minded to the art as I am.

One of the best films of 2014, anchored by great performances led David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo and surrounded with a talented ensemble, Selma is unforgettable. As rousing as the history is, the true strength of the film are the quiet moments among MLK and Coretta Scott King. Beautifully photographed by Bradford Young and confidently lead by first-time director Ava Duvernay, this is a film that will surprise you and move you in ways you didn't think cinema can.
My choice for the Best Movie of 2014. Stylish, gripping and taut. Expertly directed with such ingenuity and ripe with unforgettable performances. Harkens back to the movies of Sidney Lumet and the American Classics of the 70's. This is American Filmmaking at its finest.
So we made a big fuss about this?! It's not that funny, not that poignant, and really not that good. Those who know me know I'm a huge fan of Rogen and Franco but this ain't even their best shtick. All that hype over B-rated mediocrity.
Of all stage musicals that fit a cinematic adaptation, it's Into the Woods and Rob Marshall's production, though not exactly a home run, doesn't disappoint. The themes get a little muddled amongst the lavish design and cinematography, but the seamless direction and amazing performance turn this adaptation into something quite magical.
Nevermind the historical or religious inaccuracies; the story of Exodus is filled with so much dramatic possibilities of betrayal, discovery, destiny and freedom. Director Ridley Scott lazily disregards all that in favor of mindless CGI destruction.
